New York Gov. Kathy Hochul Deploys National Guard

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has mobilized the National Guard to Erie County as a massive winter storm batters the Buffalo region.

“New Yorkers are experiencing a life threatening and dangerous winter storm, with freezing temperatures and coastal flooding statewide, and snow and ice particularly in Western and Northern New York,” Hochul said in a Friday statement.

The guard members will assist residents, particularly those who need assistance traveling for emergency medical reasons, the governor said.

“I want to assure New Yorkers that all of our state resources are deployed to help with storm recovery efforts, and we are coordinating closely with local officials across the state,” she added.

The storm, dubbed Winter Storm Elliott by The Weather Channel, has ravaged the Midwest and Northeast over the past 24 hours. As of Saturday morning, the Buffalo airport has clocked nearly 28 inches of snowfall, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Lake-effect snow is expected to bring cold chills of up to -30 degrees and wind gusts of up to 65 mph to the Great Lakes region.

The NWS also warned of blizzard-like conditions that would make travel “impossible” for several parts of the region.

“Remember: stay off the roads and take precautions to stay safe in your home,” Hochul said.

    I cant imagine it, as its 25c here in New Zealand, not a cloud in the sky, with 4,2 quake to start the day. God protect you all.

      I lived in California, U.S.A. and experienced earthquakes all my life…..I’m sure “climate change” will ‘really’ bring earthquakes now!! Glad your weather is good for you…

    This dumb bitch can pull National Guard away from their families at Christmas time for weather but not to assist with an invasion at our border. What a c^nt. She and Kumhole Harris are a real pair.

      I agree with your sentiments, however, could do without the “c” word as it really is insulting to women!! I guess there are a couple of women who deserve to be called that!
      That being said, however, Biden can’t possibly think of our border because he is much too busy with all he has “on his plate” like whether or not his dad & Uncle were still alive when he because VP under his puppeteer, Obama….or whether or not HE gave his uncle a Purple Heart or trying to figure out where his son died…he still doesn’t know! They even took away the “wall” of train cars AZ put up to protect them, as best they can; Jackass/dems won’t be happy until the whole country is in the bread line, except for the elite amongst them, of course, if we haven’t frozen to death by then from the lack of oil & gas, waiting for the pinwheels and glass sun panels to kick in for a few hours!! Or starved by the Chinese who have been busy buying up all our farm land so THEY can CONTROL THE FOOD!! Won’t THAT be fun!!!

  • PhonyGovernorHochul says:

    First of all Hochul is not the governor!! That election was rigged like Arizona’s!! Second of all they should deploy her to Erie County!!
    With all the hot air coming out of her ass she could melt that snow in no time!! Go home National Guard!!! After the Biden Regime steals another 1.7 trillion of taxpayer money and they don’t pay the National Guard before the holidays I wouldn’t do a damn thing for this country until they remove the Hitler in the White House and jail all the corrupt democrats like Piglosi Shumer Fauci and all those involved in the evil genocide of Americans and the big sellout sale to Communist China!!!

      PhonyGovernorHochu, Didn’t you get the message from Gen. Milly that the Army and National Guard are all woke and are run by LGBTQ perverts’ and run drag shows in elementary schools for kids?

  • Becky says:

    That’s a dumbass reason to send out the National Guard; to make them endure dangerous weather, temperatures, and conditions when they have families as well. Y’all are stupid. But leave it to the libtards to waste resources.

      That is what they train for – – whether it be a Hurricane in FL, an Earthquake in CA or a Blizzard in NY ~ how can 40+ people dying stranded in cars and freezing to death be a “dumbass reason” to send the National Guard. There are hundreds of cars buried in snow drifts, some have people inside; some are no longer alive. They had over 4 feet of snow and 40+ mph winds beating on them for 3 days – – but okay, you blame it on political mindset. It’s a Disaster Area Becky and there is extensive HUMAN involvement. There are nurses and doctors who cannot get to Hospitals or a Nurse who is in charge of 53 patients herself because no one else can make it on the roads to help them…. Their snow plows are buried, but somehow the Buffalo Bills NFL team managed to get in from Chicago, to their private cars and were able to drive during the “travel ban” so it is a smidge political. IF you’ve never lived in Buffalo NY and gone through a blizzard there, or shoveled snow 12 hrs a day to just do the same thing the next day – then keep your thoughts to yourself and just PRAY for those trapped, suffering and enduring.
